The couple have yet to announce a name for their little girl amid their harrowing loss. 

Announcing his and Georgina’s heartbreaking loss earlier this month, Cristiano penned: ‘It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that our baby boy has passed away. It is the greatest pain that any parents can feel.

‘Only the birth of our baby girl gives us the strength to live this moment with some hope and happiness.

‘We would like to thank the doctors and nurses for all their expert care and support.

‘We are all devastated at this loss and we kindly ask for privacy at this very difficult time.

‘Our baby boy, you are our angel. We will always love you.’

The footballer missed Man United’s mid-week match against Liverpool which saw fans at Anfield holding a minute’s applause for Ronaldo and his family and singing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone.’ 

Following the devastating stillbirth, the couple and their other children returned home with their newborn daughter last Thursday, days after the footballer confirmed his partner had lost the child’s twin brother.

The striker shared a social media update shortly after their baby girl made the journey back from hospital following her birth.

Posting a photo for his 430million followers, Ronaldo cradled his daughter while accompanied by Spanish partner Georgina and their four children – three of which the footballer fathered through surrogates

Captioning the post, he wrote: ‘Home sweet home. Gio and our baby girl are finally together with us. We want to thank everyone for all the kind words and gestures. 

‘Your support is very important and we all felt the love and respect that you have for our family. Now it’s time to be grateful for the life that we’ve just welcomed into this world.’

Alongside the footballer, Georgina, 28, was joined by his eldest child, Cristiano Jr, 11, and twins Eva and Mateo, four, while the couple’s daughter Alana, three, sat next to her father. 

The couple had announced last October they were expecting twins and Georgina revealed she was carrying a boy and girl in a touching video featuring their daughter Alana Martina, four, and Cristiano’s three children Eva, Mateo and Cristiano Jr. 

‘Delighted to announce we are expecting twins. Our hearts are full of love – we can’t wait to meet you,’ he wrote in October. 

Ronaldo’s post showed himself and Georgina proudly displaying their twins’ ultrasounds, along with an image of his four children swimming together. 

Spanish press reported earlier this year Georgina was set to give birth to her twins at a private Madrid hospital.

The reports said the 28-year-old had placed her trust once again in University Hospital Quironsalud Madrid near to the £4.8m home in the gated estate of La Finca which Ronaldo still owns.

Georgina was reportedly spotted visiting the hospital during her visit to the Spanish capital in January with Cristiano, when they stayed in a suite in the five-star Rosewood Villa Magna Hotel after a romantic meal together.

She gave birth in a VIP suite in the prestigious hospital, a favourite of the rich and famous, to their daughter Alana Martina on November 12, 2017.

The suite, one of four at the clinic with a bedroom and living room area, two bathrooms, wifi, a television and safe, was in a restricted area with direct access to an underground garage.

Tamara Degenhardt, named as the doctor who took charge of Georgina’s last birth, is still believed to be at the hospital where she heads up its Prenatal Diagnosis Unit. 

Since meeting in 2016 at a in a Gucci store where she was a retail assistant, Georgina has followed five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo from Madrid to Turin and then Manchester, as he left Real Madrid for Juventus and United. 

Ronaldo’s oldest son Cristiano Jr. was born in the United States in 2010 but immediately taken back to Madrid to be raised in Spain. The identity of his mother is unknown.

In June 2017, the then-Real Madrid star surprised fans with the news he’d welcomed twins Eva and Mateo through a surrogate, and just one month later he and Georgina announced they were expecting their first child together.

Asked by Spanish publication El Mundo whether he was ‘happy’ to be expecting again, he said: ‘Yes, very much.’

Georgina then gave birth to their daughter Alana on November 12, 2017, with the sportsman announcing the news on Instagram, writing: ‘Alana Martina is just born! Both Geo and Alana are doing great! We are all very happy!’

In 2020, she admitted that the chance meeting with Ronaldo made her ‘fall in love at first sight’.

She claimed that the feeling was mutual following their encounter as she revealed in a recent interview with Italy’s ELLE magazine.

Georgina said: ‘The first meeting with Ronaldo was at Gucci where I worked as a sales assistant. Days later we saw each other again at another brand’s event.

‘It was then we could talk in a relaxed atmosphere, outside of my work environment. It was love at first sight for both.’ 

Ronaldo has in the past claimed he wants to take his tally of children to seven, matching his notorious shirt number and lifestyle brand CR7.

Speaking during an interview in China in July 2017 when he had just three kids and had been dating Georgina for around a year, he was quoted by Portugese daily Correio da Manha as saying: ‘My eldest Cristianinho is very happy.

‘He’s doing well and says he wants more brothers and sisters. He wants seven, the magic number, and I think that’s good.’
